ST HELIERS RESTAURANT - COLOURED CEMENT
When the owners of Auckland’s Level One bar and eatery laid a new floor, they wanted a coloured material that would wear well and could have a pattern incorporated into it.
The self levelling compound Ardex K15 was used. Through the addition of pigment and other additives, the surface colour could be customised.
As the floor is flat and smooth, it is easy to change an image once the current floor has served its purpose. A new floor can simply be laid straight over the top of the existing one.

This factory floor had oil and grease contamination. A KLB PS 22 biodegradable de-greaser was used first. The PS 22 removed a high percentage of the oil and grease which avoided adhesion failure.
Following this process the floor was then coated with Ardex WPM 163. WPM 163 was used as a streak free wearable concrete sealer. It is an economical, easy to apply, clear water based penetrative sealer for internal and external concrete surfaces.
Typical uses include: Incontinence barrier for concrete floors, dust suppressant, water inhibitor, breathable sealer for concrete, brick, stone, slate and masonry.
